The has been a lot of excitement surrounding the latest Hugh Jackman performance as Wolverine in the upcoming movie The Wolverine. Many people have been claiming that The Wolverine can be the start of something big and set a whole host of new superhero movies in motion.
James Mangold was the man made responsible for directing The Wolverine and, from the little we have seen from the film so far, it does appear that he has done a good job. The Wolverine has yet to treat us to an official movie trailer but we do now have the full synopsis, which is as follows:
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
As well as Hugh Jackman, The Wolverine also stars Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tao Okamoto and Svetlana Khodchenkova and is set to be released on July 26, 2013.
